Let The Planning Begin!

Seeing as how my baby girl’s 1st Birthday is now just about a month away, I have officially started the planning phase!

However, very quickly I came to realize that I do not know what all it means to throw a child’s birthday party. I also quickly realized there would be over 50 people invited (yes, that’s only family & close friends – I have a very large family – We’re Italian!). Oh my! I don’t know that I’ve ever thrown a party for ANYONE that was that large!

Done So Far:
– Set The Date (it’s her actual birthday on March 1st)
– The Theme Picked
– The Decorations Ordered
– The Food Planned
– Cake Ideas that I will take to the bakery
– Invites ordered and on their way to my house (sooo cute!)
– Custom Party Dress Ordered
Obviously once I start something, I take off full speed – seeing all that was done this weekend! I think I’m pretty good on the planning thus far. The only thing we can’t figure out is what to get our precious little girl for her birthday present. It’s a very special birthday so it has to be a very special present. We have a few ideas but I don’t want to spoil the fun!

If anyone has any ideas to make the day more special, please let me know! :) I cannot believe my little girl is getting to be so big!!


  1. I totally recommend Birthdayinabox.com SO much available to personalize. I got magnets that said “Thank you for coming to >____’s 1st Birthday” & loved them. His 3rd is in April and I’m nearly finished with planning & purchasing. If you need help, lemme know. I’ll be in town the first week of February & I’m amazing at spending money.

  2. sounds like a great party!!! Sorry I won’t be of much help for planning, but I can’t wait to hear more details!

  3. I just stoped on and I really like your Blog! Adorable family!!!!

  4. You are quite the party planner. I may hire you in July. My best advice is let her nap before you present her with her cake. I’ve seen too many 1 Yr. Olds crying and rubbing their eyes when the party starts to sing to them. Take lots of pictures and video. Enjoy the special day.

  5. wow!! Karys is going to be spoiled!! I can’t wait to see the pictures.
